In 2006, Pope Benedict stressed that "Divine Mercy is not a secondary devotion, but an integral dimension of Christian faith and prayer." Now Pope Francis has proclaimed an extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, which will begin on December 8, 2015. These three Popes have made it very clear that Divine Mercy is a major part of the Christian faith, and now this powerful new book reveals why.Best-selling author Vinny Flynn continues his popular "7 Secrets" series with a book that brings him back to his roots. Vinny was one of the original editors of the official English edition of the actual Diary of St. Faustina, and he has written and edited a vast number of the Divine Mercy materials that are used today.Through his "secrets" of Divine Mercy, Vinny shows how Divine Mercy is not just another worthy "private devotion"; it is the key devotion, the umbrella devotion over everything else. Every other devotion in the Church, every ritual, every activity, every teaching is under that umbrella of Divine Mercy. It s all there to help us understand and enter into Divine Mercy. He shows us how everything in our lives can become more meaningful, more powerful, more life-changing once we really embrace the gift of Divine Mercy the overflow of love from the Holy Trinity.In this compelling and timely book, Flynn draws from Scripture, the teachings of the Church, and the Diary of St. Faustina to not only reveal the heart of Divine Mercy, but to offer you an invitation and a road map so that this mercy can transform your life.If you're not yet convinced of the impact Divine Mercy can have on your life, if you've never heard of this message and devotion, or if you're curious to learn more about it, this book is perfect for you. It shows us all how to respond to the call of Pope Francis "to live lives shaped by mercy," and benefit greatly from the "Year of Mercy.""...

    This book was good, simple in its writing, but an easy spiritual read. Fitting for during the Divine Mercy Novena week.

    Excellent book if you're unfamiliar with Faustina's diary and the meaning of the "Divine Mercy."

    Great book that taught me so much about Divine Mercy, the image, the prayers, the meaning. Flynn is such a good writer that makes a topic like this very readable and understandable. I love all his books, and this is one of my favorites

    Vinny Flynn does the most amazing job at boiling high theological truths into simple language without losing the meaning or the elegance of the message.If you want to get a good summary of the beauty of the Good News, you'll want to read this book.

    Great book. I’m inspired to reread St Faustina’s diary. Mercy is there for the asking. I wish everyone in the world, especially our Protestant brothers in Christ were aware of this great gift. This gift from God is second only to his sacrifice and the Eucharist.

    My favorite book for this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy thus far is 7 Secrets of Divine Mercy by Vinny Flynn. Flynn is the author of other 7 Secrets books, (7 Secrets of the Eucharist and 7 Secrets of Confession), but I agree with him when he admits that this is the book he should have written first. It is a remarkable book that will open up your heart and your mind to the mysteries of Divine Mercy. If you think you know just about all there is about Divine Mercy, you will be astounded to learn that there is so much more to know. And, Vinny Flynn is the perfect person to tell you about it. He has contemplated the mystery of Divine Mercy for thirty-five years and has worked with Divine Mercy experts Fr. Seraphim Michalenko and Fr. George Kosciki, to train many of the current speakers on this timely topic. He edited the official English version of the Diary of St. Faustina, and for twenty years has been singing the Chaplet of Divine Mercy with his family on EWTN.Flynn is a dynamic educator who demonstrates his ability to dig into deep theological concepts and make them comprehensible to us in this astonishing account. Quoting Pope Francis, he tells us that devotion to divine mercy primarily means “putting mercy into action” and living lives that are “shaped by mercy.” In the first secret, we learn that “the Father’s plan is to introduce each of His children into the Trinity – to divinize us and unite us with Him and with each other in mutual self-giving love.” He explains the secrets of Divine Mercy with such ease, sharing personal examples and using humor that you feel as if you are simply conversing with a personal mentor. This is a fulfilling and inspiring book that will nourish you in your faith and help you put the Divine Mercy devotion into practice in your life.

    This book was given out at our church on Easter Sunday. I truly enjoyed Pope Francis' book on mercy that just came out so I thought I would try this one as well. I did not connect with it at all. Was mostly centered on image and prayers of Divine Mercy whereas Pope Francis' book was focused on feeling mercy and extending it to others. I also found Flynn's style of writing to be cumbersome.

    A fantastic book about the Divine Mercy message, image, and devotion. You don't have to have read the Diary of St. Faustina before reading this, because the appropriate passages are cited in the text, but I do recommend reading the Diary at some point. Flynn does a great job delving into this devotion and why its message is so important.

    Wonderful, simple and understandable explanation of God's mercy. Anyone, even a new or inexperienced Catholic who wants to learn and grow can benefit from this book. It is easy to understand and read--not 'heady' or overly intellectual. I highly recommend it.

    A great tool for understanding Divine Mercy. Also offers some eye opening perspectives about forgiveness, mercy, and love.

    A fine book. Short sections allow for quick and productive daily meditations and, quite often, practical actions one can take that day to live the Year of Mercy. Well written with a personal touch.

    Very good information, but I struggled with the writing style. A little too motivational speaker style for my taste.
